Synchronously, somewhere between 25-60 minutes.

With asynchronous preparation, it may take less or be completely asynchronous.

For Theater of the Oppressed: Can be done synchronously using Zoom, all students in one room; can be done asynchronously via Google docs, writing script instead of acting out, and spectactors participate by using suggest changes to edit the script.

For TRIZ/Purpose to Practice: Can be done using breakout rooms and taking notes on Google Docs or some other collaborative editing tool. Can also have students explore on their own time and record their discussions.

Different for each approach - see their descriptions.

How do I use these resources?

We have created a welcome video and some introductory text that explains in detail how to use these resources. You can also find answers to some key questions below. 

Yes you can. We have included descriptive text and slides that you can reuse / adapt for this reason. We have suggested some variations for activities to help you make adaptations.

We show how much time an activity should take and what resources you need to help you make a decision.

As we include more resources over time you will have a greater choice of activities and more information about the different contexts within which they work best. 

Any technique can block some people out, make them feel unwelcomed, or be used in a way that privileges some and makes it harder on others.

All of these techniques should be used in conjunction with pedagogies of care and what we call Intentionally Equitable Hospitality

If you try an adaptation of this activity, or try it as is and have interesting results to share, please contribute your adaptation/reflection in the comments or get in touch through social media / email.

Coming soon: there will be room to discuss these activities in private discussion forums in OneHE’s.

Please join the OneHE mailing list to make sure you know when this community space has been launched.
